Nicotine Lozenges are a nicotine replacement therapy product that comes in a small, sugar-free glucose tablet. Nicotine lozenges are taken orally and are ideally allowed to dissolve in the mouth over a period of 20 – 30 minutes. This allows the nicotine from the lozenge to be absorbed into the bloodstream, relieving the craving to smoke.
Nicotine lozenges are a popular product used by many to aid them in their efforts to quit smoking. They offer quick relief from cravings and nicotine withdrawal. It is incredibly important to use nicotine lozenges as directed because their candy-like resemblance has been known to be abused. In order for them to work effectively, you need to wean yourself off of them as per the directions on the packet.
Different Strengths of Nicotine Lozenges
Our Habitrol Nicotine Lozenges come in two strengths: 1mg and 2mg. Generally, we recommend that you choose the 1mg if you would otherwise smoke less than 20 cigarettes per day, and the 2mg if you would otherwise smoke more. Sometimes, the 1mg is not strong enough for those who have tried to quit smoking before and failed, so we would recommend the 2mg in this case as well.
As per all NRT products, it is important that you stick to the recommended dosage and daily limits. For Habitrol Nicotine Lozenges, the daily limit is 25 lozenges a day for 1mg and 15 lozenges a day for 2mg. You should be able to stop using the lozenges entirely by the end of a 12 week period. The idea is that you reduce the number of lozenges taken daily, week by week, in order to wean yourself off them effectively.
When you start taking nicotine lozenges as a nicotine replacement therapy, it is recommended that you take your first lozenge as soon as you wake up, if you would otherwise smoke a cigarette within the first hour of waking. Space out the amount you take daily so that there is an even dosage of nicotine.
Getting You Through the Quit Smoking Journey
Although nicotine lozenges are an effective quit smoking tool, they cannot work without your constant drive and determination to quit successfully. It’s also important to note that they are not an immediate cure, and there are many side effects of quitting smoking that will make the journey more difficult. As long as you have a good support system and understand the journey to quitting is temporary, believe that you can quit smoking as long as you’re willing to do the work.
